Wet & Forget Outdoor defeats mildew safely and easily, and leaves your furniture fresh and ready for you to enjoy. Read on to find out how to clean outdoor furniture with Wet & Forget Outdoor.
Mold and Mildew Spell Disaster for Your Patio Furniture
“Mold and mildew ” are words we use to describe fungal growth. This nasty fungus can grow both indoors and outdoors, on a wide variety of surfaces from walls, to decks, to your shower or the area around your swimming pool. Anywhere that is damp and shady is a big welcome mat for mold and mildew.
Naturally, mold and mildew love to set up shop on your outdoor furniture. Rain and humidity give mold and mildew the moisture they need, and porch and patio furniture often sits in the shade of an awning or umbrella. Not only does mildew love the damp, shady conditions; the fungus can actually digest the fibers in some furniture, leaving them frayed or full of little holes, and sending you out to spend your hard-earned cash on new furniture.
Bleach, on the other hand, can put you in the same boat. Bleach will permanently stain most colored fabrics, and its caustic nature means that it can also eat holes in some outdoor furniture.
